A Storytime with a difference!
Storytime is presented by me, Anna Christina! I started doing Storytime at schools and nurseries as I wanted to see first-hand how children interacted with my Music Audio Stories. However, as I progressed, I began to see that my Storytime was so much more than merely "testing" my audiobooks.
I set about writing more stories based on my experience from the children’s reactions, which is why my audio stories are such a hit with children and teachers. I realised that through my stories, I could teach children!
With well over 200 Storytimes under my belt, I've become an expert storyteller!
I have entertained and taught thousands of children at nurseries, schools, libraries and workshops with my Music Audio Stories. My fun interactive musical Storytime has become so popular, I have requests for weekly and monthly visits. My background in performing arts and Ballet helps with song, dance and drama, and I love working with children.
I created Storytime Packages at the request of families at my workshops. They are specially designed to help parents entertain, inspire and teach their little ones, using music audiobooks and printables. The success of Storytime led to the launch of a new product line, ‘Storytime with Anna Christina’ - a delightful innovative collection of music audiobooks, picture books and interactive activity booklets.
In 2022, I released my first children's book, Billy Joins the Circus! I was inspired to create an innovative picture book blending reading, storytelling, music and activities. My journey becoming a children's author has been most unexpected and I have been incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to do Book Signings at some of the largest venues in London such as Olympia London, ExCel London and many Comic Con Conventions.
